I'm sold on workshops. They are worth every penny, every ache and pain, every moan. Vianna Szabo was the best. Kim, Nina, Kathryn, Randy, Ruth,Sara, Sharon, Sharon, Pete and myself all agree. The woman was passionate about art and teaching.
I came a long way in just four, intense days. I will do this again. Tomorrow? No. I need a day to absorb--let it all sink in. I am going to watch the Morning Show on television and drink coffee while I paint with my pastels, the best medium to train oneself in how to recognize the values is the way Vianna tells it and shows it. I'm a believer--who needs to shampoo her brushes and catch my breath.
